Pick 3 players
 
From the oposing teams in the division, to add to your team. (1 from each team)

Panthers- Julius Peppers- hardest decision to make,Steve Smith was very close. Also Considered- Steve Smith- Peppers was just too much to pass up, but Smith fills the bucs number 1 need, so its tough

Saints-Jammaal Brown- Gives the bucs a stud LT, and solidifies the line

Falcons- Roddy White- Gives the bucs a good WR for the future. Also considered- Michael Boley -the bucs dont really need LB, but if brooks mentions retirement soon, then he is the pick., Deangelo Hall- great corner but not a fit for the Cover 2

Bucs - Ruud. very underrated and will allow brooking to play at his more comfortable and capable position

Panthers - Steve Smith. with him, roddy white, and emerging rookie laurant robinson, they'll be too much for any secondary to handle

Saints - Brees. what can i say? we need a QB.

scar988 01-15-2008 10:04 PM

New Orleans - QB Drew Brees

Tampa Bay - MLB Barrett Ruud

Carolina - RB DeAngelo Williams

Well for the Giants..

Cowboys - DeMarcus Ware: Actually kind of an interesting one since we run the 4-3. However in Spags system I feel like he could still be a beast in the 4-3. Put him at the weak side linebacker spot and allow him to blitz and make plays against the run. Would love to have him though, we lack a real play making linebacker.

Could you imagine on third down Osi Umenyiora, Justin Tuck, Mathias Kiwanuka, Michael Strahan AND DeMarcus Ware coming after the QB? Wow - I'd **** my pants if I was a QB.

Eagles - Lito Sheppard: Lito is a great CB. I think with him in our secondary we would be able to put our corners on an island more, giving us more confidence in the blitz. Lito Sheppard, Aaron Ross, Kevin Dockery and maybe Corey Webster would be an awesome tandem for the future.

Redskins - LaRon Landry: Easy one for me. Landry was one of my favorite players of the draft last year, absolutely loved him. He's a genuine player maker at the safety spot - something we lack. Plus he has versatility to play strong safety or free safety. An asset to the Giants. If we resign Gibril Wilson, we could have him play strong safety. If we don't then it's as simple as putting him at free safety and letting Michael Johnson play strong safety. Wilson and Landry would be a sick young combo though. Plus Wilson and Landry are two great blitzing safeties, something Spags loves to do.

Falcons:

Chris Houston. We need a CB pretty badly, and I'm madly in love with Chris Houston. I don't think any Bucs fan will forget how angry I was when we passed him up.

Panthers:

Steve Smith. Exactly the playmaker we need. JPep has had his play fall off and I'd rather get Smith and draft C. Campbell. Ryan Kalil was another guy we passed up that I'd like to have right now.

Saints:

Reggie Bush...jk. Drew Brees is my pick, and using him I'd reinvent our offense into a 4 WR spread. Steve Smith, Joey Galloway, Maurice Stovall & Michael Clayton, plus 3rd down Ike when you need him. CHAMPIONSHIP!

Caddy 01-15-2008 10:31 PM

Panthers - Steve Smith
Saints - Jamaal Brown
Falcons - DeAngelo Hall

boo. notZ championshipZZZ.

Hall is a crybaby, and pretty much useless in a Cover 2. Houston is very young and very physical. Brown is okey, but so are our OTs. Scrap Gruden & Garcia, join the dark side and win the SB.

Forenci 01-15-2008 10:35 PM

LOL, wtf? I totally thought this was under the 'NFL' section of the board, I don't know why. My apologies fellas.

Brown is much better OK, he is one of the best young OT's in teh game, if not the best, and would be a huge improvement over Penn.

Also I would still prefer Peppers, because he is much younger and much more potential. Also he is a freak, and fits in perfectly at LDE, him and Gaines would be quite the Duo for the future

Yeah Hall is a cry baby, but he has some skills and I've never been a fan of Houston anyway. I think I'll stay on the light side, green/blue light sabers are better than red ones anyway :P.

etk 01-15-2008 10:42 PM

Peppers is much younger...than who? He was born in '80 brother. What potential? If anything he's on the decline.

If you wanna talk freakish potential...talk Calais Campbell. Look me straight in my internet eyes and tell me Peppers & DeSean Jackson (if we're lucky) is better than Campbell & Smith.

Agree on Brown. Problem is we'd still have the same old scrub offense without the necessary QB to change it.

Hall has definite skills...covering receivers man-to-man down the field. We don't need him here.

Chucky 01-15-2008 10:42 PM




He gets the snakes off the planes, thats all i need from my jedis

Caddy 01-15-2008 10:46 PM

pfft etk.

Desean Jackson >>>>>>> Steve Smith & Calais Campbell combined.

I would like Campbell(even though im not so sure about him, but i dont want to get into that argument right now) and smith more, but if we were to take the draft into effect then we could easily package our first round pick, along with like our third rounder( probably wouldnt need to give that much but anyways) for an elite reciever like Ocho cinco or Roy Wiliams

Peppers + Ocho/Roy>>>>>>>> Smith + Campbell+ 3rd rounder

also regarding peppers being on the decline, he is only 27 years old and is now entering his prime, he will only improve and should regain his form from the past

Whoa...how dare you bring 2 picks and trade block WRs into the equation.

Peppers turns 28 in 3 days. I don't see how he's entering his prime now considering he put up 53.5 sacks in his first 5 years, with a measly 2.5 last year. Those numbers (age & sacks) indicate nothing but a declining football player to me.

Ya but being 28(the beginning of what is generally considered an athletes prime), does indicate that he is going into his prime. I truly believe that this one year is not a true indicate of what is in store for peppers, He has all the talent in the world and should be able to bounce back

He won't have another sub-5 sack performance for a while, but he's just not the same athlete he was when he first entered the league. FYI...28-29 is usually considered the end of a football player's prime.

Caddy 01-15-2008 11:15 PM

I don't know if I'd consider 29 the end of a players prime, but I certainly wouldn't call it the beginning either.

Heh, much appreciated. I don't know what I was thinking. I need to stop using the 'New Posts' feature. Once in a while I do something moronic like this when I'm not paying attention.

I apologize for interrupting again, I just wanted to reiterate that as I am a complete moron it would seem. Sorry guys.

After how brutally bad he was at the beginning of this year, don't tempt me. :p

Re: Peppers, from what I've been told, he was sick and had to take medicine that left him... well, you saw his play this year. If that's correct, he should be fine next year. We'll see.

Three players:

Falcons - Roddy White. Started coming into his own, makes an exceptional complement to Smith. Considered Norwood, but we need more of a power back.

Bucs - Gaines Adams. Considered Jovan Haye just to make up for the mistake of letting him go in the first place, but he would look nice across from Pep. Thought about their LBs and corners, but those are probably the Panthers' deepest positions.

Saints - Jamaal Brown. Sorry to be unoriginal, but Wharton's a free agent and the line is being reshuffled. A good LT would be nice. Thought about McAllister, but age and injury make Brown a better pick.

D-Rod 01-16-2008 09:33 AM

For the Falcons, it's actually quite obvious:

From the Saints, I want Brees, because we need a QB like crazy.

From the Panthers, I want Smith, because a combination of White, Smith and Robinson would be fantastic.

From the Bucs, well, actually, I'm not that fussed, but I'd take Ruud to replace Brooking at Mike.

That's what I used to find this thread, but I always scroll my eyes from left to right just to be sure. Most new threads are in the Team Forums anyway.

iloxygenil 01-16-2008 01:33 PM

Tampa Bay - Barrett Ruud - guy I wanted when he came out but Falcons weren't in a position to really draft him...but I'd love to wave bye bye to Brooking and insert this kid in next to Boley.

Carolina - Deangelo Williams - Another guy I really wanted the Falcons to pick up and has all the tools to be the feature back alongside Norwood...that'd be one great backfield to watch.

New Orleans - Jammaal Brown - Falcons need help on the offensive line, this kid gives us something to build with and helps protect whoever we get back at the QB spot.
